Good evening fellow reefers...

I've got what seems to be spionid worms in my tank.

They have over a period of about 12 months mulitplied to the point where they are everywhere.

I am looking for a nutural predator to keep them to a point where they do not bother my zoas and blue clove polyps.

The only information I am able to find regarding a predator for these guys is either a coral banded shrimp and possibly a copperband butterly fish.

Are there any other fish or scavengers that will munch on them?

The image is not from my tank as my lights are currently off. The image is off the net, however, these are the citters.

Tank you in advance...

Display Tank is 70 gallons...

Spionid worms are harmless and are a good part of biodiversity. It's vermetid you want to watch out for.
I am aware they are not bad, however they are bothering my zoas, they do not open fully since those tenticles bother them.

I dont mind having them, just want something to bring their numbers down ASAP...
 

When you feed your fish do you feel like your feeding the algae as well?
